We were pleasantly surprised by Arlequin having been disappointed by a few other top rated ice cream shops. The flavor selection is great, the sorbets and ice creams have great taste and texture and the service was good too. It's nice to see a shop that has a real passion for ice cream rather than just good enough to get... More

I had the fig sorbet and chocolate sorbet! It was so good that it tasted like ice cream. Their sorbets and gelato are packed with the flavor of the ingredient so you can really taste the pistachio if you order pistachio! The staff was great and let me sample a few flavors.

Living in the Nice Old Town I have tried all the ice cream in the tourist centre, where it ranges from poor to very good. Roberto, the passionate gelato maker who runs this little shop just north of the train station, is in a league of his own. Open only six months a year, he spends winters in his native... More

When I was a kid, I once said to my grandmother, "When I grow up, I'm going to eat ONLY ice cream". Now I'm grown up, I know that's really possible, and that, if there's a heaven, it'll be somewhere like Arlequin, but with ice-creams that you can eat forever without getting fat or diabetes. This is the best ice... More

Certainly one of the best ice cream you will ever try. Made with premium ingredients, which give out all their flavours. Don't leave nice without going there, no excuse it is just on the tram line..

Very good quality and range. They make the ice cream in the back of the shop. Its very busy with locals being off the main old town area. Its on the main street where the trams go and slightly higher than the railway bridge. We had two scoops which were tasty but the scoops and cornet were small.

Wow! Definitely the best ice-cream you'll get anywhere in Nice - or anywhere else. The ice-cream is handmade by the owner every morning and it's fantastic. He does little ice-cream cakes too, which I am going to go back and try as soon as I can get back to Nice. A definite recommendation - really worth a visit.

I'm Italian and feel comfortable to say that the attention to the quality and the pursuit of flavors that you can find at Arlequin is unique. I go to Arlequin from quite few years now and the quality remains unmatched and consistent. Never boring, they find always a way to innovate....a sign for me of a careful research and dedication....
